With it's docile handling characteristics and nimbleness, it makes the Quicksilver GT400 the choice of many GA pilots who just want to have some fun. With it’s yoke steering, 3 position flaps and 4 point harness, the GA pilot will feel at home very quickly.
The Quicksilver GT400 has been around since 1984 and has remained virtually unchanged since then.
Accessories that are now available to enhance the GT400 like:
Disc Brakes, 6” Alloy Wheels, Tundra Tyres (18”), GT500 Windscreen, In-Wing Tank, 2 piece GT500 Nose-cone, Updated Panel, C Box upgrade, Oil Injection and extra wing ribs. (these are all on the GT400 above)
The GT400 is currently only available without engine, as the 2 stroke Rotax 503 has been discontinued. Some dealers are experimenting with the US Hirth 2 stroke engine, and we are experimenting with the Aviator 4 stroke engine from NZ.
Check out the Aviator page on this website for details. You might be lucky to pick up a second hand R503, good luck.
